Hello!

My name is Anne Alldredge, I live in Kaysville, UT, and have been interested in aquariums for years, but I just set up my first tank in January of this year. I currently have a 28 gallon Nano Cube and I am getting ready to set up another tank, not totally sure on the whole system size, but the main display tank will be a 20 gallon long. I love saltwater aquariums, especially since I am a verified SCUBA diver! My other main hobby is growing carnivorous plants, which is pretty much tied with reef tanks, as my favorite hobby (I think reef tanks still win, though). I am excited to continue learning more about the hobby, and meeting others who share my interests. It's nice to be a part of yet another aquarium community, and I hope I can help others here as well!

Welcome to the forum! I love carnivorous plants too. I have had a couple of fly traps, but they were learning experiences in what not to do. I am currently on the look-out for another since I am now armed with a bit more knowledge.

Thank you! It's very nice to see another person who likes these plants on here. I grow Venus fly traps, sarracenia, drosera, Nepenthes, Heliamphora, cephalotus, and many other groups of carnivorous plants! If you want any information on these awesome plants, let me know. I love to talk about them, and give people advice. I also would do as much research about them as possible, if you want to keep them...

Here are some great places to get information as well as get the actual plants:

http://www.terraforums.com (I am a member on this forum, my username is the same as on here, Ann_A. If you ever decide to join there, send me a PM through there, and I can hook you up with some great people to talk to there, as well as more sources for plants...plus I myself sometimes have extra plants... So do a lot of people, and we all like to post giveaways or trades on the forum...)
http://www.cobraplant.com (Great information as well as outstanding service and plants. Definitely recommend them...)
http://www.predatoryplants.com (Another good place to get plants from, though they can have a little bit higher prices every once in a while...)
http://www.petflytrap.com (Great place to get plants from, they always seem to have a large selection of rare plants...)
http://www.blackjungle.com (good place to get plants from, though they tend to sell smaller plants, and sometimes have a little bit higher prices...)
http://www.wistuba.com (These guys are in Germany, and specialize in the very rare and hard to find carnivorous plants. I would love to order from them one of these days, but they are a little pricey-although because of the plants they have in stock, it's not really that big of a deal- also shipping is expensive because it's from Germany to the US, or anywhere else you might live, though they have a US distribute who takes care of all the paperwork and legal stuff with importing, so all you have to deal with as far as importing is the expense of shipping)


Anyways, if anyone has any questions or just wants more info on carnivorous plants, please feel free to let me know, or visit the sites I listed. I love to talk about these plants, so don't feel like you're bothering me with questions or anything... Good luck!

Thank you. Did you have fun with your fly trap :p. Are you still interested in them? Anyways, back to aquarium-related things, I have officially gotten the green light from my parents to setup another tank! I am planning to either do a frag tank, or a display tank, but use it as a little bit of a frag tank. It will be a 20 gallon long tank, no sump, no fuge, no filters, only powerheads for circulation. About 20-22lbs live rock and 15lbs aragonite sand. I want to get a red banded hi fin goby and a red banded pistol shrimp to go in there, but that would only be if I go for more of a display tank that a true frag tank with a rack and all the other works... What do you guys think I should do?
